DH keeps shaving over a decorative basket thingy, in the dining room.

The downstairs wc is 10 seconds in the other direction but he won't do it in there. He also won't do it in the main bathroom upstairs where he showers every morning.

If I don't clean it up, he will just leave it (so ignoring it won't work).

Last week I (very calmly in the friendliest way possible!) asked him if he had shaved over the baskets again because I had already hoovered and didn't want to do it again before the school run. Complete with foot stomping (he's 38) he stropped off and accused me of 'personally attacking him' hmm

Sooo...AIBU to find it gross and wish he could use the downstairs wc?! Is it just me?

I feel your pain, DP does it all over the bathroom floor and leaves it there angry if I don't clean it that's where it stays. He always enjoys doing it just after I've cleaned the bathroom too! Hide all of his shavers!

Ye god! Where do you find them?

OP - if he ever says you are personally attacking him again reply "I fucking will be if you don't learn to have some respect for our home"

Hand him the hoover, tell him to clean up after himself. Point out that the key description is 'dining' and he is disrespecting you, the home and himself in being such a fucking slob.

Either that or sit in his favourite seat/his side of the bed and shave your legs and leave your mess where it falls.

Or borrow his electric shaver and wait for him to come into the dining room for his shave and, with a cheery smile, shave your armpits over the same bowl... remember to keep on smiling as he shouts/turns green/flees!

Personally I would serve him dinner at a hairy table. Complete with pube garnish for that je ne sais quoi.

Gather them all up over one month....keep them safe. Then, when the time is right, place them on his pillow or in all of his underwear and let him know that this will happen as long as the hairs are accessible to you.

Take the mirror out of the dining room. Carefully collect the hair to sprinkle over his supper. Swap room function, serve supper in the immaculately clean downstairs loo and suggest he gets a porta loo for the dining room.

Haha! Thanks for the replies...chuckling away at a soft play place grin

I had to ask just to be 100% sure I wasn't being unreasonable. Thinking about collecting the hair and leaving it in his car (which is kept spotless..!!)

Or putting a big sign over the basket ARE YOU LOST? BATHROOM BEHIND YOU.

Honestly don't know why he is like it. I know he can tidy after himself because his Mum used to visit monthly at the start of our relationship 10 years ago. The place was spotless as if Id had a pro cleaning company in.

Even my 5yr old ds and 3yr old dd help pick up their own mess.

Take the mirror away.

What a weird thing to do.

Maybe be free of conventions, re-invent the whole house, wash the dishes in the bath tub, put the clothes horse on the coffee table, build a lego castle in your bed, sleep in the kitchen or at least suggest the above to dh grin.

Replace the mirror with a painting of something suitably hairy. A yak maybe.

googoodolly Mon 29-Jun-15 13:34:55

Collect the hair and place it on his pillow/in his coffee mug/on his dinner until he learns not to be so gross!

Squirt him with a water pistol whenever he does it. It works for cats who poo in gardens.

Or throw ping pong balls at him.
